New Year's Giveaway

My New Year's Giveaway.
My birthday is on New Year's Day.
Since I enjoy blogging so much
and enjoy reading and sharing
our cross stitch ideas,
I am having a great giveaway.
I enjoy reading comments
left by followers and you can
never put into words how much
you truly appreciate each and
every person who visits your
blog and leaves a comment to
let you know they have been there.
In honor of all of my followers
this give away is for you. To
enter, just leave a comment on
this post and let me know you
are a follower. Have a
Merry Christmas and a Happy
New Year. The winner will be
chosen on New Year's Day.
The giveaway will have amazing
stitching items. Good Luck. I was
not the first one born on that day. I
was the second one. Back when I was
born there were no prizes given.

It's always interesting to have your birthday around a holiday (mine's December 22). They sent me home in a Christmas stocking. I guess for a New Year's baby, they should send you home with a champagne flute or something :)

I've followed you for awhile now.

Cindy,
Love that you're hosting a giveaway to coincide with your Birthday celebration. The ornaments you received are beautiful, I'll mosey over to that blog after.
I'm a follower and have visited your blog often and always enjoy my visits. Thanks for stopping by my blog and such lovely comments too for my Alien Invasion Quilt and DH's health. Oh, it is cloth not felt that was appliqued to the back. I sometimes try to call myself artistic but do have trouble drawing a straight line thou I continue to try. LOL It was fun and I'm glad that I was able to finish it despite fretting about it enough.
Wishing you and yours a wondrous Holiday season. Merry Christmas!Jane
